Director Statement

Translating my theatre ideas, stories and whimsies into film has become the new journey. Like walking into an ancient forest and finding a beam of light full of fairies in the middle of the darkness. Feel incredibly independent with my Canon Rebel and my tripod. The storyboards in my brain are slowly becoming realities.
